Subversive home-spun bluegrass

 

The Lurkers play subversive homespun bluegrass. With banjo, guitar, fiddle and three-part harmonies, it's acoustic hillbilly punk about super-profits, civil disobedience and the post-post-feminist revolution. They were the winners of the 2013 Songs for Social Justice' Award, presented by the Alistair Hulett Memorial Fund for their song 'Mining Man', a protest song about Coal Seam Gas mining.

The Lurkers are currently taking a break from performing while raising tiny people.
